    wine-pages' sponsor the lovely Edencroft Wines selling six at quivalent £175.50 per bottle (£195 as singles), which I think is the best deal I've seen.

    Excellent independent merchant (like all of my lovely sponsors!!! :cool:)

  2. Is there anyone interested in splitting a case?
  3. Is that IB?
  4. I think that’s all in.
  5. If so, very very good pricing.
  6. I can take one or two.
  7. I’m looking for two or three, so are there any more takers?
  8. Tom,

    Do you know if they are available still in bond @ the IB price equivalent or offered DP only? Their listing does say they are currently in-bond at the importers facility and that would be my preference seeing as they won't be consumed for quite some time.

    The price is duty paid but let me ask if the wine can be made available IB at the equivalent price.
  10. I’d take one or two

  11. I am sure it will sell out fast if given an IB price since it will then become an investment opportunity, especially as so far below other prices in the market.
  12. Po-yu and Simon, shall I order a six pack and we can then discuss who wants what?

    Just keeping everyone in the loop: Mark from Edencroft needs to check with his importer whether or not IB is an option, so cannot answer that question currently. I will, as soon as he gets back to me.
  14. Yes please do if Simon agrees.
  15. I would take a couple also if possible. Max
  16. I’ve ordered six. I’m happy with just two if Max, Simon and Po-yu are all still interested.
  17. Tom, please make a pedant happy and edit the greengrocer's apostrophe!

    I refuse as a matter of principal - suck it up!

  20. Principle. One wonders if our leader's account has been hacked!
  21. Well I've finally tasted it... Man its good ... up there with DP '08 in terms of absolute quality, but showing a better current score at the moment (Cristal 08 is 96/100, with a potential for 98/100).

    Damn, you spotted it :)

    Mark says he can sell it IB. Not sure how to buy it IB - best to drop him a line via the Edencroft web site I think if it is of interest.

  25. Is head's pronounced differently to heads in Scotland?
